now wnbc's jonathan dienst is with us from new york. i understand you have a lot to brief us on in terms of the travel, in terms of the weaponry found at the site the other night. whatever you've got, we need it. >> we're told there are seven improvised explosive devices that have been recovered from the vehicle where they were allegedly throwing out the bombs at the police officers, to some of the devices that were found including one of those pressure cooker bombs that the older brother heaved toward the police officers and was opening fire during that wild and insane shootout that was taking place overnight. and the search continues for this suspect. they're doing it literally in a grid house-by-house, location-by-location in and around the area where he was last seen. have the whole area cordoned off. why is it taking so much time? because it is a significant area they're recovering. they remain hopeful that they will track him down, but we've got no indication that they have a sight on him at this hour. >> tell me about the older brother's travel to russia. >> yeah, it w
. now the feds are asking to speak with the wife themselves. jonathan hunt is in studio this afternoon. where is this woman right now? do we even know? >> as far as we know, shep, catherine russell tsarnaev is currently at her parent' home in north kingstown rhode island. federal agents were at the home, apparently seeking to speak to her, but her lawyer is the only wound has spoken to the fed cozy the said, i spoke to them, that's all i can say right now. we're deciding what we want to do and how we want to approach this. it appears that they will ultimately. , just a question of when. >> shepard: how much more too we know about their relationship? >> not that much. we just are not hearing from her or the family. what we do know is that she met her future husband when she was studying at university in boston. they apparently met at a nightclub, and according to her attorney, she later converted to islam and married tsarnaev. asked about her religion, the attorney said, she believes in the ten ten nets of islam and the koran. she believes in god. her parents acknowledge they knew very
extremist ties, but the case on him was closed. >> alisyn: joining us is jonathan guilliams, a former fbi special agent with joint terrorism task force as well as a retired navy seal and formal federal air marshall. you have done it all jonathan. >> i get bored easy. >> alisyn: you were talking to us while we were talking to molly that you think there could have been mistakes made at the finish line at the boston marathon they could have secured it better? >> sure. you typically see in any special event in some events like a marathon, the beginning you will have in the case of the marathon you have like 70,000 people there. but at the very end, you are going to have all those people congregating, you will have the families there and so typically the end of a event whether it's a yankee game or marathon is a very, very critical time. and it's a critical area. so you have to look at what the vulnerabilities are to that critical area. and you would typically freeze that zone. >> alisyn: when you say freeze, you mean not allow backpacks to get into that square block radius? >> what good does
through these tough times. >> alisyn: we turn to fox news contributor father jonathan morris who joins us. more evil that we've seen. what are we supposed to make of it? >> well, i think the first thing to make of it, and i'll talk about this in my church a little later this morning, is that not all ideas are created equal. as the doctor before us in the last setting spoke, not all ideas are created equal. some are true, some are false. whether you use the name of god or not. some are rational and some are stupid. anyone who suggests that their idea or their belief impells them to kill the innocent are not only radical but they have lost their minds, and we have to make sure that nobody gets away with saying somehow these are my beliefs, my beliefs are based on my understanding of god, and therefore, they might be equally as true as others. simply not true o. all of us, believer, non-believer,s christians, jews, we can all stand up to that and we have to. >> clayton: what do you say to those who might find their faith rattled. those who were there looking on the horror, how can god let th
